The challenge from UCLH Charity was to create a brand and campaign that would motivate a fundraising audience whilst at the same time speak to the cause – the development of the Emergency Department at UCLH. ‘Bring the Colour’ is all about improving an intimidating and scary environment, for those who need to use it at a potentially intimidating and scary time. Let’s hope it’s a success.
#YellowCandle campaign trending number 1 on Twitter
April 9, 2021
The Community unites on Yom HaShoah, lighting Yellow Candles to remember and honour those who perished in the Holocaust.
Every year, Maccabi GB distributes yellow memorial candles across the Jewish community and beyond in advance of Yom HaShoah. Each Yellow Candle comes with an individual information card, including the name, hometown, as well as place of death and age of a Jewish person who perished during the Holocaust.
On the night, #Yellow Candle trended first on Twitter, with people from around the world posting photos of their lit Yellow Candle on social media.
Meet The Survivors
April 8, 2021
A few months ago it became clear that our client, March of the Living UK, would not be able to take Holocaust survivors or participants to Poland as part of its annual March.
The March itself usually takes place on Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) and covers the 3km from the gates of Auschwitz to the gas chambers at Birkenau.
We worked with MOTL on an idea that bought the March much closer to home. 5 survivors and 5 well-known personalities in a Covid-friendly environment. Walking, talking and most importantly witnessing. (As Elie Wiesel said, “Whoever listens to a witness, becomes a witness”)
Check out what happened when Eyal Booker met Mala Tribich, Karren Brady met Agnes Kaposi, Matt Lucas met Harry Olmer, Ronnie O'Sullivan met Eve Kugler and Robert Peston met Lily Ebert.

It was a pleasure working with our friends at Jnetics for the Jewish Genetics Awareness Month 2021.
'GENEuary' is a brand new month-long awareness campaign, designed to raise awareness of recessive Jewish genetic disorders and the importance of carrier screening in their prevention.
One in five Jews of Ashkenazi origin are thought to be healthy carriers of a severe recessive JGD, and carrier screening identifies those at risk of passing one or more of these disorders on to their future children.
Back. To the future?
December 10, 2020
From Charlotte It's been less than two months since I came back to Creative & Commercial after maternity leave, and pretty much the first time I've been able to take stock of how it's going. I haven't stepped into our office for over a year - and whilst i don't miss the physical premises, I certainly miss the opportunities for creativity and collaboration which come from in-person interaction. Nonetheless our amazing team has harnessed new tech and 2020-friendly ways of working in order to keep sharing ideas, developing skills and innovating for our clients. (more…)

To survive this crisis, charities need a brand-new approach
May 15, 2020
From Barry Brands strive to make themselves relevant, but what do you do when there is only one event in the news cycle — and that event is a killer pandemic? At the start of the recession that followed the 2008 financial crisis, McKinsey, one of the world’s leading management consultancy firms, analysed the behaviour of nearly 700 businesses during previous downturns. The findings were stark. Approximately half of the companies that entered these downturns as leaders ended up lagging behind when the economy picked up.

Get animated with C&C
May 6, 2020
We like to tell stories. Stories of achievement and success. Of need and generosity. Of hope and happiness. Of what has happened and what happens next. These stories take on different forms - online, in print, in film and in person. And no two stories are ever the same. Right now everyone’s got a story to tell. And we want to help you tell it. To all those who should be hearing them - whether they know it or not.Of course, we can’t send round a film crew right now. But that doesn’t make us any less committed to telling your story. In fact, it’s got us even more animated… We’ve been using animation as a tool for storytelling for a while now, with some pretty impressive results. Not just creating the content, but deploying it in the right place at the right time. Combining all our strategic, creative and media expertise with eye-catching and engaging effect. If you’re wondering how to tell your story right now, please be in touch. We’ll work out the best way to do it, together. Creatively and, of course, commercially.
